 +<wrap lo>The Axanar lawsuit is either David vs. Goliath, or a battle over control of Star Trek, or fans trying to express their love for a treasured legend, or soulless corporate greed threatened by plucky creatives, or amateurs using intellectual property they don't own to finance a foothold in the film industry. But undisputedly,​ the case rests on whether Axanar engaged in copyright infringement,​ an often misunderstood aspect of intellectual property law. Our backgrounders explain what's at stake legally in this case and why.</​wrap>​ \\ \\
